Beginning with beautiful valley Pokhara-valley of lakes, you will pass through many waterfalls, terraced farmlands, typical ethnic Nepalese villages, rives, lush rhododendron forest( depending upon season)-at the appropriate season the whole jungle is covered with red/crimson rhododendron flower which wraps whole jungle just like a Kangaroo wraps its baby in its pouch).
Though, this trek can be done any time of the year. However, in winter the snow level rises and gets quite difficult and at worst case even the Base camp may be closed. If you want to get most out of your trek spring season could be the ideal season, with rhododendron forest full on bloom.
